Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Can you pm me a screen shot of what you mean

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

After doing some reading of this excellent forum I have managed to build and fly my first quadcopter, been flying fixed wing and helis for the last 40 yrs on and off but always looking for a challenge.I chose a Hobbyking HAL with kk 2.0 a quad esc some 28 mm motors and 10 inch props  using 3s power,quite surprised that it flys as I have an allergy to anything technical?? :o The only main issue for me is that I now only have a DX 8 on mode 1 <my fixed wing mode> and that I have always flown my helis on mode 2 so finding it difficult and confusing to fly ?? , really don,t want to pay for another Dx8 so thought about a basic Dx5e ?.I have always used my expo/rates on fixed wing so can I get away with a basic tx and use the kk setting to soften the quad??
cheers Euan.


I started off flying helis mode 2 but when I started flying planes I had problems and converted to mode 1, I now fly planes and quads mode 1; yes it took a bit of time to adjust but by taking it steady and getting plenty of practice with a Twister quad on mode 1 (from Steve Webb models) I';m okay now. I found it very confusing to try and fly dual mode and it was costing me too much in oops'; s!
If you';re absolutely 100% that you have to go mode 2 then I would seriously consider a Turnigy 9xr, it will do more or less everything your dx8 will do and is considerably cheaper.
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


Well you can get the original DX7 for not too much, and the current DX7 is a tolerable price these days.

Not much kit, but what I have I like
